The City is providing a fantastic opportunity to own your own kilt by purchasing one from $25 when you register.

Fashioned with two belt buckles and velcro to adjust, these kilts are made of good material that will keep you warm while on the course. The kilts are measured in inches and it may be necessary to adjust within one or two sizes of your original pant size. If you are picking up your kilt, please arrive early if you want to select the right fit for you. 

Child kilts: $25
Adult kilts: $35

New kilt sizes

How do I get my kilt?

Kilts bought online are to be picked up at the Perth Kilt Run registration area as you check in.

We recommend that all runners wear comfortable and suitable attire, such as bike pants or shorts, to wear underneath your kilt.
